I've pitched or "given away" these. My given away is in quotes because my brother has either used them up, about to use them up or I've consciously gave them to him lol.

All my hair oils
Soultanicals Coiling Jelly Gel
PM Foaming Pomade
APB Hair Cream
DE Curl Forming Custard
CD Clay Mask (in the jar)
SM Superfruit Multi-Vitamin Conditioner
Giovanni Blackberry Shampoo and Conditioner
Renpure Leave in & Conditioner
Renpure Manuka Honey shampoo
Elucence Moisture Benefits Shampoo
As I Am Scalp Care Cowash - my brother was actually using this as a conditioner. Needless to say it was going pretty quickly. It's not much different than the regular one though so not a repurchase once it's done. I can't even find the jar. lol

I've done some purging to give away. I may need to do more. I'm already preparing mentally to stay strong on black Friday. Purging helps by reminding me of money wasted. I'm also eliminating myself from mailing lists.

I moved over the summer and now I have so little space for anything. I have most of my hair products in a bedroom closet which is hard to get to. So I'm more motivated to use things up and get to some staples so I can more easily get to things. But I also have to stop buying stuff. I purchased several Hair Rules products because I wanted to try them and they stay out of stock. I have stored them for now.

Right now I'm focused on using up the Reddken Cleansing Conditioner and the Kerastase Hair Mask. I'm back to cleansing weekly after having my hair in extensions for the summer.

I'm also working on using up the Aunt Jackies gel. I think I can use up all 3 of these by the end of November. This month I will see if I have any jars with just 1 or 2 uses in them to get rid of them.

I have a feeling I will be throwing out some things come spring.

I always get sucked in by sales. That's why my number went up so much. I also have a product that is sticking around longer than expected. It should be gone this month and then I can move on to other things. Not going to put a goal number to get to for this quarter. I'm going to be traveling so having a regular schedule for doing my hair will probably be out the window.

Hello all, my name is B_Phlyy and I enjoy taking hotel conditioner samples just because. That is the single greatest reason my stash went up this session. And I wasn't using up as much due to my work and travel schedule. I ended up decluttering a giant liter size of conditioner that took me to long to figure out was damaging my hair. I suspect if I hadn't been using that, I'd have been able to use up more conditioner.

Surprisingly, I did completely run out of 2 full sized shampoos and am halfway through a sample sized one now. And I do think that I am going to stick to only travel sized shampoos for the next year or so. I was gifted one full sized one in October so it didn't make the inventory count but it's in my current stash.

As we've moved into a real fall, I'll be wigging it through the rest of the year. So mostly cowashing with once a week DC and following LOC so my hair is moisturized under the wigs. And I'll be seriously sticking to my no buy until the end of December.

Finally washed out my deep conditioner. Decided to pull out a rinse out conditioner and use up a bit of that. Then I followed up with the Aunt Jackies gel. I probably have 3 more uses of that.

Today I tossed my SM conditioner and my Aphogee 2 minute conditioner.

My stash is slowly getting smaller mostly because I’m throwing out my old staples as I acquire new ones.
